I'd seen him play at the EM in Sweden and France were pathetic in that tournament and he was the only shining light there. I remember he got this long pass from Perez, trapped it in stride and put a swerve on Björklund who was his daddy in this game and then drilled a shot in the corner.
He was meant to be a humble guy and it's disappointing that pieces of crap like Stéphane Guivarc'h and Donkey Dugarry got World Cup medals and he didn't.
Good to see he was nice to you.
